This is a 10-week course that runs from June 28, 2021 – September 5, 2021. This construction materials and processes online course will give the student an overall understanding of materials and methods. Each week we will study one specific material category, one specific construction process, and an overall construction system. The student will have the opportunity to expand the studies to include materials and processes which are normally encountered by the student in his/her work place. In addition the student is expected to research and report on the session materials and processes with respect to sustainable or “green” construction.
